Good morning David. I was wondering if you ever heard back from your friend on the voltage drop to my injectors. I have the 2006 cts with 2.8L. I dropped you that video showing the drop in brightness to the node light.

I did, and I've been crazy busy and I apologize for forgetting about posting it. He said it has to be a weak/bad ground. It might take me a few to find out the diagram he sent.

k. It hasn't acted up again but now that I've found someone (you) who can help me, I'm excited to get it figured out. Let me know what you see. I'm guessing I'll need to clean a ground cable somewhere or something. right?
